“We like to use pick made of Ultem material. After having tired other pick brands out, we like CLAYTON pick best. Spike or Ultem picks seem to generate clear and sharp sound.”
Pinky Doodle Poodle is a high energy, female fronted rock band from Tokyo, Japan formed in 2008. PDP features lead vocalist/bassist/guitarist Yuria, a successful Japanese anime singer often heard in popular video games in Japan as well as on solo records and with her band Honey Bee (2004-2007).
Rounding out the duo on guitar is George, a long haired shredder/composer who brings PDP a musical sound reminiscent of a marriage of the MC5 and Bad Brains swirling under Yuria’s playful Japanese/English lyrics and melodies.
The band has released a handful of EPs in Japan and Europe and have just completed theirfirst full length LP in the US with producer / Goo Goo Dolls member Robby Takac at his GCR Audio Studios in Western New York. Their latest 10 song self-titled album is slated for release in the Spring of 2014.
Having recently done tours of Japan, Myanmar, Europe and a few select dates around the New York area in 2012, PDP is now concentrating their efforts on US markets and fans aroundNorth America and are eager to get the chance to bring their unique brand of rock to the US and Canadian fans.
